Catchment Partnership Agricultural Adviser Jobs Vacancy at Royal Society Wildlife Trusts Jobs Details:
Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (WWT) are working with Severn Trent Water (STW), other West Midlands Wildlife Trusts, the Environment Agency (EA) and other partners on river catchments to tackle pollution in watercourses across catchment areas and to bring them into good ecological condition. An important part of this programme is to work with farmers and landowners to reduce diffuse agricultural pollution into rivers and streams and to tackle water quality in Severn Trent’s drinking water boreholes in the area.
These posts are suitable for experienced and enthusiastic agricultural advisors to work on behalf of catchment Partnerships, funded through Severn Trent Water’s AMP 6 Catchment Management programme, and based across different county Wildlife Trusts. The post-holders will deliver a programme of farmer/agronomist training events and one to one farm visits to promote resource protection and a reduction in diffuse water pollution from agriculture, with a focus on pesticides and nutrients. The project will also include supporting farmers through the Severn Trent Water capital grant scheme in target areas of the groundwater catchments, in order to support farm infrastructure changes to reduce diffuse water pollution. You will also work with Trust staff and other partners in catchment areas to develop ideas and projects to improve watercourses for wildlife through habitat creation and management.
Severn Trent Water is the world’s fourth largest privately owned water company, listed on the FTSE 100 and serving 8 million customers. We care about what we do and how we do it. Always looking for improvements, we want to be known as the UK’s best water business. To achieve it we need can-do people who want to develop their skills as fast as we progress our business.
The Wildlife Trusts are dynamic conservation charity, working at a local and regional level to secure a better future for wildlife and people, as well as working with local communities and campaigning for the natural world.
If you have a relevant degree and a minimum of one years’ experience of providing pollution reduction advice to farmers and landowners, a strong background in understanding water quality issues, lowland farming systems and wetland ecology, we would be very interested to hear from you.
A full driving licence and your own vehicle will be required as the post holder will often need to travel within and out of the county they choose to apply too. Some weekend, Bank Holiday and evening working will also be required.
